From Twitter: "Hi, WriterTwitter: yesterday was my last day at Folio & I won't be taking on clients when I start my new gig. If you queried me (1/2) before I left, please feel free to reach out to another Folio agent. It was a great 8 years but time for a change--I'll miss y'all. (2/2)"

Molly Jaffa is set to participate in a picture book querying opportunity via 12x12 so she probably also reps picture books.

10/5 - liked my pitch during Twitter's DVPit Contest
10/6 - EQ w/sample
11/20 - Going to mark as CNR. Sent to three agents here, and they said they pass pages around. One already rejected, so I'm guessing the other two are a no at this point.

I received an auto reply on 10/20, but that was to let me know she was out of the office at the Frankfurt Book Fair. She might not use an auto reply when she's in the office.

@karenleespree Folio doesn't send auto-replies, in my experience.

EQ: 9/6
CNR: 10/10 MG (SFF) since I never rec. an auto reply I resent (10/11) what can it hurt? weird, no auto reply. IDK!!

8/9--EQ
8/15--Tweeted that she's all caught up on queries from the previous week and sent out only two requests. Since I did not receive a request, I'm assuming it's a rejection!

I haven't heard back from the "personal feedback" either. Maybe she's not reviewing those until she has time to respond? That's what I'm hoping at least!

I sent her my query for her 'personal feedback' offer back in November, and I never heard back.

janflora, I don't know if you have a premium membership, but I can see from the Data Explorer that Ms. Jaffa rarely responds these days, so I think she has become a "no response means no" agent, unfortunately.
